was the first american city to develop a water system and to take on as a municipal responsibility water delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. now, they didn't know at the time that yellow fever was carried by mosquitoes. but the health issue was major in that first movement to build a water system. narrator: so they set out to find the cleanest source of water. although the majority of philadelphia's water now comes from the delaware river, early engineers found that development along the waterfront was causing pollution. so their search led them to the nearby schuylkill river. philadelphia developed technologies to pump water from the river into the city. these technologies established engineering concepts that

, the wealthy real estate developers and the highly-paid city employees. i recently completed two years of service on the sunshine ordinance task force and i served as chair for the last year that have and i saw what i'm talking about first-hand. the sunshine ordinance task force mediates disputes between the members of the public and city hall when the people want to get public information and access to open government. we have to end the cycle of making the rich wealthy while slowly eliminating the middle class. i will bring much-needed integrity and ethics back to our city government. i will demand accountability for the use of our taxpayer money and our bond money and make sure that it gets used for services that we need instead of pet projects and special interests. last year we were asked to support a bond for street repair, this november we are being asked for the second time within five years to support a bond for park maintenance, despite the fact that the money from the first bond for park maintenance, $47 million of it has not been used and the committee that is tasked with o

doing about it? >> america's cup -- we are very fortunate to have landed in the city of san francisco. that was one of the first things i talked with mayor jean quan about. we are engaged in discussions in three sides of the bay, to talk about adequate security for the people who come here. we are still very excited about it. we know the budget analyst report caused some concern. they talked about the worst-case scenario as well as the best case scenario. worst-case scenario -- the money is not raised on the private side. we have challenges with investments and the agreements we want to have with the investors. the best side is we make $2 million after a billion dollars of economic impact for the bay area, 8000 jobs that will be created as part of this ongoing effort. i think we have the foundation for it, going forward. i think the private fund-raising is there. we have a good team of people. they are raising that money. i think the negotiations that are going on with the event authority and our board of supervisors right now to talk about the trade-offs, if you will, with these inve
findings. >> thank you. colleagues, one of the first thing issues did when i joined the board of supervisors was to call a hearing on bedbugs in the city and county of san francisco. prior to that hearing actually a group of many of our residents from neighborhoods, chinatown and south of market and the tenderloin had been convening meetings fore over a year to discuss what we could do about the citywide epidemic that has been plaguing our neighborhoods. through the work group this legislation came forwards a series of recommendations on what we could do to better abate bedbugs and the bedbug abatement issue here in san francisco. this legislation will address three primary issues. the first of course is to actually collect data on bedbug abatement. so to require pest control operators to report to the department of public health on bedbug abatements and to have disclosures and create better information by the city and county of san francisco for tenants, our operators and for our property owners. so i wanted to call up two individuals who have been working very steadily on

space all across the city. >> george, how would you like to respond? >> i would like to respond first by saying thanks, richard, for inviting me. what has happened to the park system where groups throughout san francisco are now getting together to say no to another park bond. why is this happening? is the park system really being effective in san francisco? the same national trust for public grants, which matt just mentioned, we are one of the best-funded parks in the country. yet you see so many parks with problems. you see so many people that are having problems with the recreation and parks department as they never listen to neighborhood concerns, they don't deal with neighborhood concerns, and what's happened is we feel that we have paid for these parks and we feel like we paid 100 percent. the mayor's office has stopped this payment and the city keeps asking the people who live in san francisco, the voters, to pass bonds to continue it support the park system. the 2012 bpbld was originally scheduled for 2014 and it has been moved up. about 41 percent of the 2008 bond, 73 mi

outside of their communities or out of san francisco. this is the first step of many that this board of supervisors can take to demonstrate that the city has learned lessons from the ills of redevelopment and has intentionally developed a plan to be more conscious of the families fact impacted by redevelopment type of activities. this legislation gives a family that is forced to move a choice in priority to return to the site where their homes once existed. it also begins to rebuild in addition to housing trust between residents and the developer teams charged with redeveloping the site. the high level concept of this legislation do the following: gives households the right to return provided that they have not been evicted. minimizes screening criteria in order to ensure that residents aren't somehow weed out and restricted from the new housing. income eligibility qualifications not be affected theriors city review of any relocation plans and entires [skphrao-eupbs/] with local beliefs. it also required a non-binding recommendation to be issued to the housing authority commission pr
to be recognized by the small business commission. i started working for the city about nine years ago for supervisor alioto-pier, and one of the first things we worked on together was proposition i that we took to the voters that included the creation of the small business assistance center, and really aimed to dedicate more resources to small businesses. and i consider myself incredibly fortunate to have worked with some of you directly. some of you worked indirectly worked with regina many years, to. worked with commissioner e. rely on the formation of the small business revolving loan fund. obviously to have worked with commissioner dwight on the sf made collaborative. commissioner dooley and i have worked together on numerous measures that have come before this commission over the years and it's really been a pleasure to oftentimes work in the early stages of a program or a concepts and shepherd them, help give them some form and launch them and hand them over to folks who really spend their lives day in and day out working with small business. the neighborhood economic developmen
of two biggest cities. what has that meant to your city? what benefits has a broad backs either of you can take the first crack at that. >> obviously, being the first chinese asian american mayor in san francisco is significant. as mayor quan knows, we have generations of his stories were we had the local laws that literally prevented our population from voting. it is significant for so many fronts that i think are all well spoken of already. having said that, i have been working in government for 22 years. i have seen what it takes for a mayor to be successful. i have supported for may years. i have run five different departments. for me it is good to not only celebrate this historic vote, but recognize how important it was with communities that have suffered for many years, but to take that and share it with all the other communities of san francisco. we could be a jeremy lin. to be able to lead an open opportunities for african- americans and gays and lesbians to work with labor as strong as other mayors have and to make sure there are linked with the big decisions, to unite the cit
goodman. san rafael, california, on our 100-city tour of the community media center of marin. its first live, global broadcast. we turn now to a major new investigation by shane bauer, one of three americans detained in 2009 while h in iraq's kurdish region near the iranian border. he and joshua fattal were held for 26 months, and sarah shourd, now shane's wife, was held for 13 months, most of it in solitary confinement. seven months after being freed from prison in iran, shane bauer began investigating solitary confinement in the year ended states. now his first major article since his release, he finds california prisoners are being held for years in isolation based on allegations they're connected to prison gangs. evidence against them might include possession of "black literature" or writings about prisoners' rights. shane's report appears on the cover of the new issue of " mother jones" magazine. it is called, "solitary in iran nearly broke me. then i went inside america's prisons." this figure report that goes with the article documents shane bauer's journey to california's pelica
? >> i think that, i think that, mayor emanuel has a lot of problems. first of all his city isn't going his way. and, neither is the country going obama's way. it will be a night where if the president tries to play cute, tries to get just a little more than clever by half, he is going to be in real trouble because there's nothing waiting for him at the end of the economic discussion but his record. so i don't know why in the world he would turn there. melissa: no. >> and the other part of this is, that --. melissa: i guess unless he feels so many pain over foreign policy. if benghazi gets really heated and wants to talk about anything else. >> the audience will not put up with that kind of nonsense. he pretty much put a stake down he will say almost anything in order to preserve his position at least on stage, if not in the oval office. we're not even hearing him about the discussion the fact he cut off business with canada, stopped the keystone pipeline. that is part of international diplomacy and foreign policy under this administration. we're not hearing anything about the 200 mexic
,100 in services and that's what i suspect we should be doing. >> thank you. >> if the city needs to generate new revenue for the budget what fees should it institute? >> well, first of all we need to close loop holes. we can't have big office towers sold and pretending they're at the 1978 price so we need to close the loopholes. we need to encourage small business growth. we can't live on facebook alone and make sure a small business owner with an idea city hall makes it easy to grow and start your business because that will drive a dynamic local economy and i think that's the key. >> all right. >> it seems as though we're all avoiding the question, and that is what new fees and what new taxes should we impose and i guess that's because we're all reluctant to do that and we feel the better way is figure out new sources of revenue for the city, so i agree that we need to do things that would enhance the quality of life in san francisco and draw more tourists and expand that center and we're turning away dollars to the city. we need a new facility and we don't have one currently for that and we
. that was the first photo you saw. hence the building at 155 hancock. yet as the years passed, san francisco city government came to realize the important value of protecting our architectural heritage not by resisting every legitimate attempt to replace decaying structures but by insisting that the new project permits ensure bleplding of new structures with their surroundings, comparing and contrasting the two buildings at 155 and 160, which are the two last photos i showed you, reveals a solution to the problem 4530 sanchez. the superior choice, i would assert for this board, is to follow the basic direction embedded by previous city agencies to approve buildings which maintain the architectural flow as in 160 hancock with adjoining properties and avoid the dissonance of the permits from an earlier period that permitted the construction of 155 hancock. this is the principle that should be applied to the decision before board regarding the matter at hand. throughout human history, cities have been defined and influenced by the quality of their architecture. great cities have achieved that stat

to the proposed ordinance. the first is that our audit found that san francisco is falling short of the city's regional assigned goals, particularly for low and moderate income housing. while the city is on pace to meet two-thirds of its overall housing goal, at the current riterate of projection it will only achieve 16% for low-income housing and 25% for moderate income housing by 2015. the second issue relates to written reports that have been presented to the planning commission, which we found do not sufficiently explain how residential projects contribute to housing element goals. the department staff reports contained standardized language when discussing the basis for recommending entitlement approval, including finding that thes project conforms with the project code and enumeration of the housing element and applicable area plans that it advances. it also at the request of the planning commission, the planning department began submitting quarterly reports in august of 2011 to the planning commission to report on the city's progress in meeting the regional housing needs allocation go

of the projects that the city was considering as of right. so that was the concern that i had. the first amendment, the one regarding the review of the affordable pieces i'm completely in favor of and fine with that. >> supervisor wiener? >> so if i could just clarify with supervisor olague. the area that i think supervisor olague has expressed concern with is basically four words on page 4, line 24 of the amendment. that states, "to the planning commission," and i want to make sure that i'm correct in my interpretation of supervisor olague's remarks she is okay with the remainder of the amendment, but not with "to the planning commission." with that i would move to divide the amendment so we can vote on everything except the phrase "to the planning commission." and vote on that separately and if we could take the first amendment and ask the planning department staff to address the second amendment. >> okay. so supervisor wiener has amended the amendments. you withdraw your initial amendment and the revised amendment is the language he has proposed to be changed. and that is seconde

for the first time, the correct pronunciation of our fair city is boca raton though we've heard every variation as possible. right now we have friends eni joying the event through watch parties throughout palm beach county and thousands of university staff and faculty watching across campus at the red, white and blue party. i look forward to seeing them, too. there are official alumni parties around the nation and faithful international lynn alums are gathered together to witness this historic moment and the other nations our graduates call home. since it was first announced that lynn university would host a presidential debate nearly a year ago, we've representedly been asked one question, who are you? for those of you who never heard about us, you heard about our polite response, it is a t-shirt selling incredibly well with students. but if tonight is the first time you've ever heard of us and our institution, that's ok because we've been waiting for this moment for some time to tell the real story of lynn university. just 50 years young, our institution is boldly oriented to the global socie
city. 42-year-old gena has been missing since october 13th. police have charged live-in boyfriend clark with first degree murder. investigators say they found blood throughout the couple's home. outside the home, they found blood-stained woman's clothing broken furniture and a plastic shower curtain stained in blood. officials say clark discussed telling police where body was as long as he could get a deal. congressman jesse jackson junior is heading back to the mayo clinic. jackson has been on medical leave from his duties as representative of the second congressional district since june for treatment of bi-polar disorder. in a robocall this weekend jackson pleaded with his constituents to be patient. the reverend jesse jackson his father says his son needs more treatment to in his words regain his equilibrium. jackson has served in congress for 17-years and is running for re-election. he has not been campaigning however and faces a challenge from republican brian woodworth. it is against medical advice. i will always give my call to my constituents i ask you to continue with pa
. this is the first report i have seen where they have started analyzing private business practices. i think the civil grand jury should be about auditing city government. they are now geting into private business. i have some concerns about that, particularly when it's volunteers who frankly are not private business owners and don't necessarily know it. and these concerns really started to grow beyond just getting into private business affairs. the civil grand jury exercising legal analyses and providing legal opinion, which was the biggest concern that i had with their report last year on park merced. all of a sudden you have a report that has the stamp of the superior court and not one member of civil grand jury was an attorney and yet they offer a legal opinion. i think the civil grand jury in a sense needs to check itself and make sure it gets back to its original mission of auditing city government and focusing on all practices and refrain from fashioning itself as a city-attorney or refrain from becoming the city controller. it's the civil grand jury. stick to your responsibilities. do those we
was the chief of the urban populist movement in chicago where it was first tested to see if he could couple the interest of the dirt farmers with the immigrants and the factory workers in the city. and so he ran for congress once and was defeated. he was offered the nomination for mayor of chicago and turned it down and was offered the nomination for governor of illinois entered the town. in 1904 when william randolph hearst ran for president, darrow tried to do what william jennings bryan had done, which is seize the presidential nomination with a single speech. he was supposed to nominate first for the presidency. he wrote this amazing speech. he gave it as -- at midnight one night at the democratic national convention. all the reporters just loved it. it did move the gallery bill wait -- it did not move the gallery the way that bryant had, the magic just was not there. the goal democrats, the wall street democrats to come back and seize the party and controlled the floor. so it was a trick that darrow tried. he could not pull it off. it was one of the reasons why he hated bryan ellis lif
that is -- that's how far we go down. narrator: stretching more than 60 miles under the city, tunnel 3 is taking generations of workers to complete. ryan: i don't even want to imagine what my father had to go through. when we first started, it was a rough job. everything was dynamite. now, they have these machines called "moles." it's like a big drill, and it just cuts right through the ground. so there's no more dynamite. and it's still a rough job, but it's gotten to a point where it's a lot safer. in the '70s, we lost a man a mile basically. here, maybe we've had two or three deaths in the last 20 years, which is too much anyway, but it's cut down a lot. hurwitz: city tunnel number 3 will be an opportunity to take city tunnel 1 out of operation and rehabilitate it. city tunnel number 1 had one valve to shut off the whole tunnel. city tunnel 2 had two parallel valves. city tunnel 3 has 32, so there's much more redundancy. lloyd: we're targeting a completion date of 2012 for tunnel 3. and we already are starting to prepare to take tunnel 1 offline. narrator: the construction of tunnel 3 is vita
and planning for elders. first i want to thank four bringing up this issue and considering it today. we really think that the dashboard is an important step for meeting affordable housing goals in the city. we of course represent seniors and people with disabilities and housing is one of our biggest issues. i talk to people literally every single day struggling with affordable housing. i remember in april seeing how much market-rate housing is being built and some of the imbrance in the housing had a we're building and especially as that compares with the people that we know so desperately need housing in san francisco. it would be wonderful not to look at it end of the year or every other year, but as every project is considered to be able to say, wait a minute, maybe there is a problem here. as people have pointed out. of course it's not in a easy to say there is a problem and let's fix it, but to be continually aware of it and to always be on people's radar and say where else can we find resources? maybe we need to put this probing on hold a little bit while we look into this other projec
